Zynga Loses Three More Executives, Two from Facebook Games Division

The blood-letting continues at the once-popular Facebook games developer.

Despite gaining former head of the Xbox division Don Mattrick, Zynga’s free-fall into oblivion seemingly continues as three more executives departed from the developer this month. While two of the executives were working on Facebook games, the third was responsible for Zynga’s real-world gambling – some thing that was dropped in the US last week.

So it only makes sense that VP of casino gaming Jesse Janosov would leave. However, John Osvald and Nathan Etter were both vice presidents for the gaming division and were instrumental in the growth of perhaps Zynga’s most popular title, FarmVille. Given how this occurred shortly after Mattrick’s appointment, it seems that the company is still very much in the red.

As of now, Etter is working at Disney Interactive division according to a report from Bloomberg. We’ll have more news on the outcomes of Osvald and Janosov as they arrive. What misfortune could possibly befall Zynga next?
